Living things increase their presence after they are gone.

The photographer who has been taking pictures of the anti-nuclear power movement on Iwaishima Island, Yamaguchi Prefecture, visits Iidate Village, Fukushima Prefecture, with Kikujiro Fukushima, and takes a picture of the empty barn. I feel something wrong with the fact that things before the 3/11 Great East Japan Earthquake were never questioned in Japan, as well as the subsequences of the 9/11 terrorist attacks were talked about, but things before the 9/11 were never questioned clearly in the United States. The feeling overlaps the words. From a collection of photos in Nasu, "My Private Fukushima: going with a press photographer, Kikujiro Fukushima and going."
